mitt romney moving from being behind by 8 points to being ahead by 4 points. the rasmussen poll out this morning also conducted post-debate that show them tied. rasmussen has a reputation for being a poll that makes republicans look good. gallup is considered a nonpartisan poll, not one with a tilt one way or the other. they show president obama up five points, though much closer for the post-debate portion of the sample. president obama was on the west coast today courting latinos, and he gave some remarks about the state of the economy and how it affects latinos. >> no matter who you are and what you look like or where you come from, this is the place where you can make it if you try. today we have more work to do to fulfill that promise. the recession we're fighting our way back from is still taking a toll, but thanks to the strength and character of american people, we are making progress. >> now, of course, latinos are one of the reasons president obama has been doing well in some of the western states like colorado, nevada, new mexico, as well as florida. we now have to see gi
romney. obama falls into the trap and his polls crash again. he loses a debate. he loses the week after the debate, and he loses big bird. i've never seen anything like this, newt. it is amateur hour. >> well, i think what you're finally seeing is that once the shell cracks and once the facade breaks, i think obama right now is totally disoriented. they are shocked watching six months of careful work just disappear in 90 minutes. it was the worst performance which an incumbent president i think in my lifetime. even jimmy carter did better than that 90-minute performance by obama, and i think they are probably literally shellshocked right now which sets the stage for tonight. i think it's going to be very interesting to watch tonight. i suspect, i don't know, but i suspect biden's going to come in there trying to re-establish some sense of momentum, and i think that ryan's got to go in, stick to the facts and be calm and steady and a potential president. >> just on the joe biden thing for a second. nobody, including obama, has really created an argument, a rationale, a reason for re-elec
this comes as the romney rally continues in the latest polls. rasmussen has romney up by one. investors business daily has romney leading obama by five, 49-44. there's the daily tracking poll. with tomorrow night's debate, won't the inevitable paul ryan victory just send team obama over the edge into the looney bin? well, that's kind of the way i see it. but there may be some disagreement. we have karen finney, columnest for "the hill." and kate obenshane. ms. finney, this is the way i look t it. romney is smarter than biden. romney is better informed than biden. romney is younger than biden. and romney is cuter than biden. so i think romney's just going to do great in this debate, your thought? >> i assume you mean ryan. >> i did mean ryan, i'm sorry. i take it all back. >> if ryan wants to show those abs, i'm sure the audience would love it. look, there are a couple of things. joe biden will be able to hold ryan's feet to the fire in a way that i don't think anyone else has. and we've heard some of that conversation earlier this evening on your program talking specifically about the b
another four years of president obama and the debate comes as a new poll shows the president and romney are neck and neck in two swing states, virginia and florida to see you obama still has a small lead in ohio to see you. >> so while the latest polls may show a tight race, there's another one that some folks think is more important, yes, it is the 7-eleven indicator to see you it's selling coffee in democrat blue cups with obama's face and republican red featuring romney to see you the tally shows customers favor obama by 60/40 margin to see you the 7-eleven indicator has correctly predicted the winner of the last three u.s. elections to see you. >> i'm not sure that's a huge sample set to see you. >> have they only run it in three elections? >> good question to see you what's interesting, jetblue for its part is also getting in on the presidential election saying that if your candidate doesn't win, it will pay for you to fly -- >> interesting the colors in the uk are the other way around to see you. >> isn't it? we need to discuss this to see you but, yes, i don't know -- when i got
research had obama up four in ohio. but another poll, arg had romney up one. there's a new poll out today, came out today, survey usa has obama up one, 45% to 44% in ohio. >> i guess it depends on how many democrats you poll and how many republicans. >> that's true too. >> and that's why the debate is so important. because that deals with the energy and enthusiasm of your political base and that gets the turnout. if democrats are feeling muted and down beat after the debate, they might not be as fired out to go out and get their friends and rent a van and go to the polling place. the same thing with the republicans on the flip side. the enthusiasm and turnout on the base is going to matter in ohio. >> eamon, thank you. >> you bet. >> okay. are you a nationals fan? >> i'm -- i'm not. i'm not a baseball guy. so, but they're having a good year down here and redskins are doing all right too. >> yeah, that's true. a programming note, cnbc's coverage of the vice presidential debate starts tomorrow at 7:00 p.m. eastern time. are you part of this? >> i am. carl and i are doing that. >> and lefrak
in denver last week. we've seen some movement toward mitt romney in the polls. you saw that when joe biden raised the 47% video and went very hard about the values that mitt romney expressing there. but of course that provided an opening for paul ryan to come back at joe biden and his reputation for say things in the exactly the right way. >> i think the vice president very well knows that sometimes the words don't come out of your mouth the right way. >> but i always say what i mean. >> now, that was a very funny line by paul ryan, but what you saw was then vice president biden picked up and continued to go aggressively as he did all night after paul ryan. and he said it was the republican ticket that was being disingenuous when paul ryan was criticizing obama's economic record, the economic stimulus and biden says, wait a minute, you asked for some of that stimulus money. >> i love my friend here. i'm not allowed to show letters, but go on our website, he sent me two letters saying by the way, can you send me some stimulus money for companies here in the state of wisconsin. we we sent mi
poll data out this morning. mitt romney now leads president obama by 48% to 47% in virginia. and in florida, obama leads 48% to 47% among likely voters. and in ohio, romney trimmed two percentage points off of obama's pre-debate lead. the president holds a 51-45% edge among likely vote everies there. john harwood will be joining us live from kentucky with more in just a few minutes. but first andrew has this morning's top business stories. >>> we got some banking news this morning on wall street. jpmorgan cfo dug braunstein will be stepping down. he'll take on another post within the company, so he won't be leaving, but it was on his watch that the jpmorgan london whale experience happened and there remains scrutiny all around that. he's expected to lead the bank's earnings call tomorrow morning, so a lot of interest thp. in other headlines related to jpmorgan, deal book is reporting that the fbi investigation into the bank's $6 billion trading loss may not inchbly indicate jamie dimon, buts investigation does not appear to touch on the echelons of top management, but the co
the first debate last week in denver, mitt romney's closed. we've got some new nbc/"wall street journal"/maris polls out this morning that show, first of all, you've got a challenger that's tied with the president, up one in virginia, down one in florida. that's essentially an even race. between those two you've got 42 electoral votes are you talking about. mitt romney remains down in the state of ohio. that is one his campaign believes he must win to get to 270 electoral votes. he's down six, 51%-45% in that state. however, mitt romney got on a wave in denver last week and paul ryan has a chance tonight, guys, to continue that momentum, an interesting match-up, we've seen it before of an older, experienced vice president, a younger less tested running mate. we saw it with dick cheney and with john edwards in 2004. dick cheney got the better of that. we saw it with lloyd benson and dan quayle in 1988. it appeared that lloyd benson got the better of that, but of course george bush and dan quayle won the election. i talked to dan quayle yesterday -- or a few days ago, rather, he said he t
of the specific issues julian mentioned, if you don't think the polls have moved that much, then you aren't looking that closely. ohio is now within very much the margin of error. florida is going toward romney. and you're looking at states like michigan, pennsylvania, new hampshire, very much in play. this race is extremely tight. and that debate last night did not help democrats at all because guess what, joe biden did not explain why the ticket deserves to have four more years. he did attack the romney/ryan ticket, but wasn't really able to take any credit for any achievements because there haven't been any. on the libyan situation, he was really embarrassing because he contradicted not just the department of state, but he really threw the intelligence community under the bus using them as a defense for what has been a coverup of a terrorist attack on 9/11. >> julian, do you want to get in here? >> yeah, let me respond. first of all, i think that the polls have moved a little bit in places like florida, not substantially enough in ohio, pennsylvania, michigan. secondly, i think -- >> i
to be on message. team romney is on a roll, is on a roll and the last week he's on a roll in the polls. that's why i'm saying ryan, he's got to be polite and respectful but on message and i believe economic growth and jobs, is the message. >> he has to have his youth. needs to let his youth take advantage of the full scope of what that energy can bring to the seat. >> there's youth and there's -- -- >> go to cnbc.com. the vice presidential debate is about to start. here's abc's martha raddatz. >> good evening and welcome to the first and only vice presidential debate of 2012 sponsored by the commission on presidential debates. i'm martha raddatz of abc news and i am honored to moderate this debate between two men who have dedicated much of their lives to public service. tonight's debate is divided between domestic and foreign policy issues and i'm going to move back and forth between foreign and domestic since that is what vice president or president would have to do. at the beginning of each segment i will ask both candidates a question and they will each have two minutes to answer. then i will e
